Through an intentional, developmentally appropriate program of loving nurture and educational excellence, King’s Kids Christian Preschool introduces the person of Jesus Christ and God’s plan of salvation to the children and families in our community.

joyceDirector Joyce DeYoung
With over 40 years of both education and experience in the field of Early Childhood Education and Development, Joyce sees it as a privilege to pursue God’s calling in her life to share the Gospel of Christ to children and families. Joyce has enjoyed all aspects of the preschool arena, as a Head Teacher, school curriculum coordinator, Co-Director, trainer, and staff mentor.

When not busy with preschool, Joyce and her husband David, of 41 years, delight in (and do their best to keep up with!) their 7 grandchildren!  Teaching a preschool Sunday – School class at her church keeps her in prime preschool mode, and serving as church pianist allows her to fulfill her interest in hymnody and the great music of the church through the ages.  Sharing her love of music with children is incorporated into the King’s Kids program each week as she leads musical instruction in the classrooms.
